Award-winning 'Avenue Q' production returns for encore

Award-winning 'Avenue Q' production returns for encore

ATLANTA -- It took home seven 2011 Suzi Bass Awards, not to mention tons of critical and audience acclaim.

Now, Horizon Theatre's lauded production of Avenue Q will return to the stage in January.

Avenue Q is "an explosion of upbeat energy, music and puppets for grownups," according to co-artistic/producing director Lisa Adler. "We're thrilled to be one of the first theatres in the country to produce the play regionally, bringing our own Horizon spin to it."

The production, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2004, follows the residents of Avenue Q, the only address you can afford when you're fresh out of college, out of a job or just trying to find your way in life. "Sesame Street"-like puppets, monsters, videos and songs tell a very adult story that tackles tough subjects like racism, unemployment, homosexuality, pornography, homelessness, lust and love.
